Over the next few weeks we will recommend the parks of each municipality on the Costa del Sol, accompany us on a walk through the parks of Malaga!
Estepona a few years ago began to remodel the streets of its old town. Currently there are more than 70 streets remodelled and there is a magnificent Orchid House in the centre; the city rightly bears the nickname “Estepona, garden of the Costa del Sol”.
Parque del Calvario
This is the largest park in the city built on a slope with lots of vegetation and a water circuit, benches and a stage where usually are performed outdoor shows. The Orchid House is located within a 5 minute walk.

Parque del Orquidario
In the centre of this park is located the magnificent Orchid House of Estepona, a 2-level building with a 15 meter waterfall and three glass domes, which houses more than 1,300 species of orchids from around the world.
The buildings adjacent to the park have been painted with hyper-realistic artistic murals recreating bougainvillea, palm trees and other plants, so that the painted vegetation is mingled with the real one.
